This glorious celebration of motherhood is edited by Sarah Brown and features brand new stories and personal recollections by popular writers such as Rosamunde Pilcher, Kate Atkinson, Gervase Phinn, Meera Syal, Alexander McCall Smith, Joanne Harris and many, many more. It is sprinkled with wonderfully touching and funny anecdotes from figures such as Jilly Cooper, Arabella Weir and Jenni Murray and features cartoons by Posy Simmonds, Sally Ann Lasson and illustrations by Shirley Hughes and Quentin Blake. A rich treasure trove that reflects the many voices of motherhood from across the generations.
